CDC claims it’s ‘only a small percentage.’
The latest figures from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal more than 4,000 people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 have died or been hospitalized from “breakthrough” infections.
The exact number is 4,115 either hospitalized or dead despite being fully inoculated.
The CDC says the number of people who have died from COVID-19 after getting the shot is 750, with 76 percent of deaths and hospitalizations among folks over the age of 65.
“As of June 21, 2021, more than 150 million people in the United States had been fully vaccinated against COVID-19,” the health agency explained.
“During the same time, CDC received reports from 47 U.S. states and territories of 4,115 patients with COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough infection who were hospitalized or died.”
